So...since we've got some sort of storm approaching near where I live (Northern VA), it's possible that we might lose AoL services. I have all the gear on UPS that will run for about 30 minutes, but who knows what will happen if the outage is widespread/prolonged of if there is a lot of flooding.

What are AoL services, you ask? Well, the main things are the AoL and Broken Faith website (these forums) and our Mumble server.

Everyone in the northeast be safe this week!

The DC area seems to have help up fairly well. Some down trees and scattered power outages, but nothing major from what I've seen so far. My power/Internet was steady throughout the storm.

I left my apartment in Middletown, NJ on Snday and I have not been back since. According to a friend, our apartment was not damaged, but other places in the area were hit hard.

A few pics of the damage where my Dad keeps his boat at Staten Island. The last pic is of the only damage to his boat - a minor scratch.

Glad you're ok. My in laws are in from NJ. They were without power for a few days (FortLee) and for about two weeks (Hoboken). What a mess.

I lucked out, nothing serious happened in my neighborhood, other than no subway service for 11 days.

About a mile down in Coney island though, severe flooding, looting, loss of power for weeks.

Here's a picture of the subway station 3 stops down from where I live at:
